The Shoot: Athleisure, But Not As You Know It

Get Sporty

The new wave of athleisure has arrived. The trend is going nowhere fast, with comfort remaining a priority in our post-pandemic world, but who said you can’t be comfortable and look fabulous, too? Athleisure is a combination of activewear and leisurewear; two moods, blended harmoniously into one glorious fashion movement.

In Get Sporty, photographed by Carla Guler, athleisure is elevated by the likes of Stella McCartney, Chanel and Louis Vuitton – the latter of which brings much-needed sparkle to our summer wardrobe. For those that assume athleisure is all sweatshirts and pyjama-like pieces, think again for 2021. Bright-white midi dresses with mesh inserts add a dose of femininity while Balmain’s structured blazer has shoulder pads that’ll make you swoon. Dress up your ‘fit with cowboy boots, mules or, as seen in MOJEH, roller skates (if you can stand up in them, that is).

For off-duty days, opt for Balenciaga’s casually confident co-ords or Louis Vuitton’s sequin-striped basketball shorts to stay cool (in more ways than one) throughout the scorching summer. Going out-out? Celine has your new-season essentials; layer a structured blazer over tailored trackpants and sports bra, topping off the look with the House’s signature baseball cap. Outfit of the day, every day.

Whether you’re running track, running errands or running late for a dinner date, let our shoot – expertly styled by Anna Hughes-Chamberlain – be your summer style inspiration.
